Everlasting

Happy Friday all y’all! Recently I’ve been working on memorial pages on this website for those members who have transferred to Post Everlasting, Squadron Everlasting, Unit Everlasting, or Ride Everlasting. I finished and published them last night. They can be found under the appropriate program’s menu. Thanks go out to Faith Insley and other Auxiliary members for providing pictures and other info for Unit Everlasting. If you’re online and looking at those pages, check them out, and contact me with any additions/changes that should be made on those pages. You can contact us by using the “Contact Us” feature on this website.

Thanks!

Love Tech, Hate Tech

Friday, 7/23: Ok. I love technology. I hate technology. Sometime early today — — our website provider updated the software that ran our website; for you techies, it was Drupal. Well, it didn’t go so well. It totally broke all the styling and much of the custom functionality I had added to the website recently. Even better, I found out that Drupal 8 versions will no longer be supported in about 3 months! So, I am going to take this frustrating opportunity to switch to a different platform…right now. I truly appreciate the compliments I have received recently on the new website, and I hope that this version will be even better AND last a whole damn lot longer than the last one. — JPR3, Post Adjutant.
